Review of Lifeaxe Emergency Hammer

This is a review of the Lifeaxe Emergency Hammer


The Lifeaxe emergency hammer is quite a beast of a device weighing just under 500 grams and having not just one but five steel points to strike your window with! It is all about the power and force with this emergency hammer. It uses a 60 degree point angle for best possible impact with the window.

This particular emergency hammer has been installed in many buildings and recommended by the fire service of use in emergency escape scenarios.

It is quite a bulky hammer to carry around in your little Kia picanto or fiat 500 and is more of an industrial or home use emergency hammer however if you have the strength and would rather use something with more power for peace of mind then this is the right one for you.

It has a protective  case for the steel points to protect them from damage but also to protect you and the vehicle it is travelling in.
